Deep Fried Mars Bars


Makes 10-12 servings. 

––125g self-raising flour
––130ml milk
––1 egg
––1⁄4 teaspoon salt
––Sunflower oil, for frying
––10-12 fun-size Mars bars 

Place the flour, the milk, the egg and the salt in a bowl, and whisk thoroughly to make a smooth quite thick batter. 
Fill a small pot up to 5cm with the oil and place over a medium heat for about five minutes. To test that the oil is hot enough drop a small bit of the batter in, if it sizzles and immediately pops back to the surface then the oil is ready.
Dip the each Mars bar into the batter, then carefully lower into the oil. Fry until golden in batches of two or three, then drain them on a paper towel for a couple of minutes. Serve with some vanilla ice cream and a good dollop of shame and self-loathing, as befits eating a deep-fried Mars bar.
